What’s in Season – Florida Eggplant
|June 9, 2011||Posted by admin under Cooking, Recipes|
I confess…I love eggplant! It’s one of those vegetables that I enjoy in a variety of ways. Perhaps my favorite way is eggplant Parmigiana, where it is breaded, fried and baked in marinara with cheese. However, I like it sauteed, pureed into dips and grilled also. Several years ago Chef Justin did a “how to” on Florida eggplant. It can be found here.
Florida eggplants are harvested from September through June, and are grown mostly in South and Central Florida. The USDA Nutrient Data Laboratory lists 1 cup of eggplant cubes as having only 20 calories, .16 gram of fat, and 2.8 grams of fiber.
